Last Saturday (same day as the Christmas Party), Grandpa, Uncle Bryan, McKayla and I went to watch a parade. To me it's not the Holiday Season without watching at least one parade and this parade was even more special: Chris was marching with his JROTC class this year! (Ah memories. I too marched with my JROTC class in a parade years ago. :-) )
We were late getting there and barely had enough time to find a spot to watch. Luckily we were able to find a good clear spot where we were could catch the start of the parade.
First in line (phew! Glad we weren't any later!) was JROTC.
Notice their black jackets? Yeah, AFTER the parade, they had to return them and we noticed quite a few kids walking all the way back down the parade route in their Class B uniforms (dress shirt, pants and shoes for you non-JROTC people LOL) MINUS jackets in 30 degree weather. Seriously? Couldn't there have been a better way?
Then the rest of the parade. Enjoy!

|Look at the little guy!!! D'Awwwwwww!|
Could anyone tell I like horses by the number of pictures I took? I didn't share all of them either ;-).
I was proud of my boy, seeing him in his uniform marching with his class. We came home with lots of candy (Man! They were just pitching that stuff left and right! We all ended up with loaded coat pockets LOL) and cold noses but we had a great time.
